the people here in the state of california and the rest the nation in times of disaster. but there is work that needs to be done. first, we need to find a way that we can share capabilities that are resident within each of our organizations. as the commander of the army national guard you would think i know what forces are available in the army reserve in california. but i don't. i don't even know who their general officers are. i have no visibility on what forces are available at camp pendleton depending on your deployment cycle what fleet week can bring to bear. and we need to find a way, perhaps dcl, north palm being the broker of that, to maintain a better capabilities database so we know what is immediately available because under our old constructs, if we needed additional help in the national guard in california, we would go to the national guard from other states and that may be 1500 miles away. and that capability could be right down the road or down in san diego in one of the reserve components or in the active components of the marines or the navy and we need to sort through tha

about michelle from california whose family was the first family to be monitored in the oakland tribune. it stunned even scientists. the tests found many of the same chemicals they found in charlotte's 5-year-old mic ala, she had recently spent a lot of time in nail salons. the biggest surprise of what they found in 2-year-old rowland, chemicals found in nearly anyone else in the world 6 times higher than in parents, twice the levels that researchers see in land animals. this is a serious warning said a scientist researchers on flame retar tkapbts. young children are exposed because they put their hands in their mouth and bodies don't eliminate chemicals as readily. to me i think very historically crystallizes what we are learning. that was a story in 2006 by the environmental working group where they analyzed the umbilical cord blood of newborn babies and found an average of 200 chemicals found to be toxic in every single baby, man made synthetic chemicals. when we see this picture that babies are being born into the world polluted with industrial chemicals it is time to say how can we
asia period might have been done i wanted to write a book that was contemporary and set in california. i knew i wanted to write a mother daughter story line. that's what i began with. it was the first time i said, this character not necessarily has to be asian. none of these characters necessarily have to be asian. i was of mind opposite of what you are saying happened through the book. what happened was the more i started to research when i discovered warner's, ime wantedo write. i was feeling older as a person and wanted to translate that into a book. when i thought i would write about the care taking situation and wanted to write about a mother and daughter and i thought was there an aging disease? where children grow old quickly. by the time they are 7 or 8 they look like little old people because they age so quickly. the first thing i asked myself is there a version of this disease for older people. does it start later in a person's life? as i'm researching i discover warner's syndrome and that's how it came to be that particular disease in the book. i thought this works because
impacts are. for 40 years this has been at the core of our land use in california. i think there has also been an increasing recognition in recent years that ceqa serves many important purposes, but at times it goes beyond its intended purpose and has become a tool to obstruct, delay and at times significantly increase the costs of projects, including very, very important public projects. it happened here with the north beach library and bike plan and other projects. there has been dialogue in sacramento and throughout the state about the need to reform ceqa, so it fulfills its purpose without going beyond that purpose and in san francisco the process that we have in our administrative code for ceqa appeals adds to the concerns. i described this at a hearing at booker t. washington as the wild west in san francisco. because we provide very, very loose timelines, in terms of when people can file a ceqa appeal at the board of supervisors, people sometimes file appeals months or years after the department -- the planning department issues a ceqa determination. this legislation will among o
were going through a lot of enter advantage with the high speed rail and california high speed rail on how to adapt the rail levels for their operations and so those changes were in process at that time and we have done a lot more work with both those operators and the other operators since that time. as well as worked with the design team, some peer review. and we wanted to bring you an update on all of those changes that have occurred over that time frame. >> so, as i mentioned, the time of the 50 percent construction documents we were incorporating the plans for the train box extension in phase two into the drawings and we have further refined the layout of the platforms, the upper image on the screen that you see, where we were at at that time. since that time, we moved the platforms to the northern side of the train box. and modified the shape of the train box slightly to eliminate some conflicts with existing development. but, we are going to be able to support cal train and high speed rails operations in this configuration. the rail concourse level actually has gone through e
is about a lot of things. it's about kids, teachers, it's also about the credit rating in california. it's about social harmony. it's about hope. and it's about those who have been most blessed to have an opportunity to give something back. >> also warning in doesn't pass it would trigger $6 billion in automatic cuts. most of it to schools. >> our students already suffer from 4 years of cuts. that have already devastated public education. >> but opponents say the politicians are crying wolf. >> it's a big scam. they can go fix it. they could start by auditing every department. they are avoiding doing what's really necessary. which is a total overhaul. >> polls on prop 30 are very close right now. and one issue complicating the matter is prop 38 a competing tax measure on the ballot. >> there are two challenging for prop 30 and with time running out. >> you are making fools of yourselves butting in here. >>> they are turning up the heat. in san francisco, cbs 5. >> the state's political watch dog commission says a donation to a san jose city council is illegal and must be returned. the $1

states than california, which raises taxes and takes money out of the economy and puts it into the government's hands, which is huge for a state like that and florida is getting its act in gear. >> what do the candidates have to learn from these governors? neither one of them has exactl the same policies. >> the first thing we can learn is five out of the 7 governors in the swing states are republics. so, a lot of the macro republican policies seem to be working at the state level, an rick talked about florida but look at wisconsin, scott had to go up against theecall to get collective bargaining with the unions, and, john kasich,he same in ohio and, he has gone out and had about 18 tax cut plans, he's straightened out the tax coden ohio and these are the types of things either presidential candidate needs to implement, ing forward. to startreating jobs again. >> susan, john makes a good point, fighting unions and collective bargaining, going up against regulations. those arell things that seem to be working on the state level. should the candidates be looking at this?
. in a season where drivers drive less. but in hardest hit california, consumers don't want to wait three weeks for even more relief following a summer of dramatic price spikes there where they saw gas prices above $5 a gallon. but there's good news for those in california, if there's not a major world event, we're told, that prices could drop as much as $1 for california drivers. >>> now to what may be the craziest story of the morning. take a look at this hidden camera video of a guy vandalizing cars, homes and lawns. the people who live in this neighborhood say they rigged up the cameras to prove that the damage is all tied to one man embroil ed in a nasty feud. john muller is on the story. >> reporter: good morning, dan. call it the latest installment in the neighbor from hell series. we have seen these stories before, and this one comes from miami complete with surveillance cameras and plenty of strange behavior. one man is under arrest charged with criminal mischief and stalking. they call him the neighbor from hell. members of this miami neighborhood say this surveillance footage is proo

made. >> absolutely. >> and also with the state of california's report suggesting that 8 million wouldn't be enough to get a plan done. so if you could just address those two points that have come up. >> sure, let me start -- again, go to the report it says again 7 million is what's needed for san francisco to engage in the planning process. the larger amount is if we bring in the park service and the state of california, which at this point we don't need to do, we just need the san francisco public utilities commission to get off their butts and start to think about the future more effectively. this really boils down it a 21st century versus the 20th century view of water. sean says our future is secure. it isn't. anyone who thinks our future water supply is going to be coming from the tuolome river is crazy. the one thing we know about climate change is we have to change our water sources. again, we don't recycle any water. we're going to start importing water from daly city next week. we have some plans on the books to do 4 million gals by 2035. that's a fraction. the san fr

of that but because of drought to california. the real dust bowl, the panhandle of oklahoma and panhandle of kansas, colorado and new mexico, that was the epicenter of what was a nationwide drought. but the epicenter of the dust bowl was this area of the worst manmade ecological disaster in american history. you go wait, man made? that had gone over my head a little bit. a decade long apocalypse that not only killed your crops but moved more dirt in one day than the entire ten-year excavation of panama canal and dumped dirt in chicago and detroit and people turned on street lights in new york and franklin roosevelt went like this and had dust in the oval office. had oklahoma on his fingertips in the oval office. then it not only killed their crops but cattle and children. they started to die of what was called the dust pneumonia. who is still alive to tell the story? and you needed to find that critical mass of people. we did that and did that shoe leather to find those people, children and teenagers at the time who would suffer through this ten-year apocalypse. i think all of us after two storms w
leaders in california, john perez introduced legislation to allow families who are middle-class to receive, i believe a two-thirds reduction in their tuition at state universities. unfortunately the legislation did not pass, but he pursued it. guess what? in san francisco 150% of ami is just slightly above $150,000 for a family of four. and of course san francisco has a much higher cost of living than the state as a whole. so if speaker john perez says that middle-class for a family, for the whole state of california goes up to $150,000 a year, then i think it's incredibly reasonable to say that the same is true in san francisco, even though it's much more expensive to live here than it is in most of the state your full name i did just want to make that comment because the argument is not well-taken that to state 120-150 is upper-middle class than middle-class. >> supervisor campos. >> i don't think having a different perspective is disparaging and it's one of areas where there is room for disagreement. from my perspective it's good to provide more information and i certainly think tha

which will accommodate local and inner city bus service as well as caltrain and california high-speed rail service. the roof of the transit center will also feature a 5.4 acre public park city park. other goals of the plan include sculpting of the downtown skyline, investing a substantial transportation infrastructure, and improvements to streets and open spaces and expanding protection of historic resources. adoption of the plan included hybrid classification of numerous parcels in the area to increase height limits including the landmark tower site, with a height limit of 1,000 feet as well as other several sites -- i'm sorry, as well as other nearby sites with heights ranging from 600 to 850 feet. as the largest and tallest development within the plan area, the towers [speaker not understood] an integral component to the goals of the plan with respect to regional growth, urban form and the development of a robust transportation infrastructure. project sponsor will give a detailed presentation regarding the design of the project, but i would like to highlight a number of the s
